So You Want to Buy a Louis Vuitton Replica? Tips for Snagging as Close to the Real Deal As Possible.

We all love Louis handbags – we can’t say enough about its timelessness or general chicness. But when you are in the market for a used or replica Louis Vuitton bag there are certain dead give aways that you need to truly be aware of before you make a purchase in order to avoid the “fake stare” – a term I have dubbed to describe the leering eyes of those who have trained themselves to spot a fake a mile away and give a smug look to the owner once they have done so. It is a horrible feeling but oh so preventable if you educate yourself on what to look for when shopping for that perfect LV (whether it be a Neverfull, Palermo, Tivoli, Speedy etc.). The following are key tips I recommend:

1. LOOK AT THE T’S ON THE LOUIS VUITTON STAMP.

The T’s on the handbag are distinct and do not touch one another or come close to even doing so. This what the authentic handbag looks like and what any handbag you are considering purchasing should look like.
Spot-a-Fake-LV-Purse-Page-004This is a fake LV handbag. The T’s are touching one another giving away that it is fake right away to any discerning eye. Please watch out for this if you are after a handbag that looks exactly like the original. If you are not willing to give as much scrutiny then you need not mind this post.  

2. LOOK AT THE “MADE IN FRANCE” STAMP

If the handbag says “made in France” it is correct. If it is written in caps “MADE IN FRANCE” the handbag is a fake and this a deadly giveaway to anybody who knows anything about LV’s. Please be careful about this ladies as this is one thing which is easy to miss yet so important! However do keep in mind that LV does not only produce their handbags in France but it can also be stamped with a different country’s name such as the US or Spain. As long as it is not in all caps you are safe.

3. MAKE SURE THE COLOR IS LISTED ON THE LV WEBSITE

Looking for a handbag, and found a color you have fallen in love with? That is fine my darlings but please make sure the color is part of the official color collection by LV otherwise it will certainly be a dead giveaway indicating your handbag is fake. So please double – and maybe even triple – check to make sure the color is an official color. This will save you a LOT of embarrassment when you are asked about it by others.

4. MAKE SURE THE INTERIOR OF THE HANDBAG MATCHES THE PRINT ON THE OUTSIDE

Louis Vuitton has recently released more variety in their classic Monogram Canvas Neverfulls in that the interiors are available in other colors including the fuschia and mustard yellow we can see here. These are called the Neo Neverfull bags. I personally love the mustard yellow interior. Which one do you prefer? I need to get my hands on a good replica of these and share with you guys!

If you are buying a piece from the Monogram collection please ensure that the inside is the same lining color as the authentic Monogram Canvas collection (brown interior) and not the deep red like the Damier Ebene collection. There is nothing that screams fake as much as an incorrect interior does. Remember that when it comes to buying a designer handbag – the inside is just as important at the outside. It is all about vanity at the end of the day, and it would be a horrible injustice to own a handbag from a manufacturer that couldn’t even respect the basics elements of design of the brand they are seeking to mimic. Let me know if I missed anything important in the comments below and I will update the post!

REP-A-PORTER Review – Black Prada Saffiano Replica Knockoff

So I purchased from REP-A-PORTER after they relaunched since I always heard good things about their Prada bags. What do I think of the bag now that it is here? It is actually a pretty good replica. The leather feels good, and the inside of the bag is nicely done as well. I remember reading somewhere that you can judge a replica handbag by its interior quality. I agree with this statement since every replica handbag I have purchased which turned out to be a piece of c-r-a-p looked disgusting inside. But every decent replica I have bought has had an interior which matches the exterior’s quality. Take a look at the pictures below and let me know what you think.

The customer service of REP-A-PORTER was better than other replica sites I have dealt with since they at least knew English. I had to pay with Western Union which I have gotten used to now that I have bought over 3 replica handbags. I think you just really have to know where you are shopping. After owning both real handbags and replicas I have to say that finding a good replica is like hitting a small lottery win since you know how much you have saved from the authentic. Here is a link to their website: www.repaporter.com
